Awake to the Beauty Around Us


Let’s relish the beauty all around us. We can appreciate unanticipated delights. Here are some examples in which to bask and recall our own treasured vistas.

Example One

View Into Town, NFS

Early one morning Ernie took a quick look out his window.

The light was rising; the sky was clear; a brightening, pleasant unremarkable scene.

In a few minutes E felt an impulse to turn his head back to the window. Gazing, Ernie’s breath caught in astonishment. The horizon line was bright with oranges and yellows. As his eyes rose, he beheld layers of color, purples in stripes, all through the clouds. The sky was completely infused with color. It flabbergasted him!

Example Two

About twenty years ago Ned readied for his commute. Our star took a quick glance out the window, a fine day, lovely if unremarkable morning light. Soon after, N stood at his car scraping windshield ice. Ned felt a pull to look up to the heavens. Wow! Ablaze before him the hero gazed, mouth open  at glorious sky: a sunrise brilliant with strong mauve, oranges, yellows and pink. These colors were intense and vibrant. The vista was so unexpected…

This protagonist had no idea what delight was in store. There had been no sign.. So much Grace.. That fabulous events show up without warning.

We feel can reach for feeling good and to perceive the bounty offered. We can attract delightful experiences of all kinds.

Example Three

Ben drove the main road to the nearest city where there were more businesses, classes and more. One December morning B came upon a familiar scene: a large field, barn and trees behind. On this day there was a fog and the view was one of awesome beauty. In Ben’s head he heard, “Stop and take this picture!”

He pulled over, grabbed his camera and started to shoot. Infused with awe, B took pictures effortlessly.

Months later Ben accepted an opportunity to submit photos to a calendar contest run by the local monthly paper. A new activity, he picked out a few shots and recalled this one and included it. That submission won and was featured on a monthly page. The whole atmosphere around this picture felt like grace.

Take Away:

Look around for beauty and find it!

Feel satisfied and be ready.

I would dearly love to hear some of the wonderful things that arrive to delight you. Please comment.
